Just a few years after the release of Fallout 4, Bethesda surprised fans with the official announcement of Fallout 76, the next entry in its beloved post-apocalyptic RPG franchise. The new game was revealed after a series of taunts in a trailer, and Bethesda discussed it at the E3 2018 in more detail. While there's not much left about Bethesda's upcoming game yet, the company has given the most clarity on Fallout 76s Specials and Additions to the Fallout Formula
Keep you up to date on what Fallout 76 has to offer we've put together all the information about the game: the platforms it runs on, its online functionality, its anti-griefing features, and where the game falls into the series' series
Fallout 76 a prequel to all previous fallout games. In 21
Longtime fans will probably recognize Vault 76; Although it is not a place we have visited before, this is not the first mention of the series. Both Fallout 3 and 4 refer to it, and according to Fallout Wikia, this vault in West Virginia was occupied by 500 of America's best minds. In contrast to the grotesque experimental vaults in the Fallout universe, Vault 76 is a control vault that is to be opened 20 years after a nuclear war. But if the vault opened 20 years after the bomb dropped, why did it take 25 years? The story probably has some surprises in store.
Fallout 76 uses the Creation Engine, the same engine that was used for Fallout 4, but it's reported to have much more graphic detail than its predecessor. Game director Todd Howard has said Fallout 76 has new rendering and lighting technology that allows "detail" 16 times.
Is it an online survival game?
Fallout 76 is a completely different kind of game from its predecessor. It's "completely online", but do not worry, you can play it alone. According to Bethesda, the idea of using this approach to survival around the world came four years ago when it began building a multiplayer fallout experience. Howard described the game's survival approach as "softcore," meaning that death does not equate to losing progression.
You can form a party with up to three other players. You can not manage your placement on servers at sign-in because they are automatically inserted into a session with other players when the game starts. Of course, you also have the option of simply playing with your friends and playing together.
